A Man’s World
by Jace Daniel (b. 1969)
There once was a man who was unhappy with the world as he saw it.
As he watched this world, he found it filled with people who were dishonest and two-faced. Greed ran rampant in this corrupt place; trust was nowhere to be found. People in this world were judgmental, bigoted, and self-righteous. Hatred seemed to infect this world, making up its rules as it went along.
When the man turned to look at something else, he found people to be plastic, shallow, superficial, and ingenuine. Still other people were hurried, one-dimensional, and completely void of the ability to be real.
“This sucks,” he thought.
He turned once again in hopes of finding something of value, and was inundated with yet more people telling him what to do, what to buy, what to wear, where to go, and what to say when he got there.
“This sucks,” he thought again.
So the man got up from his couch, turned off his television, and lived happily ever after.
